Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Enjoyed But Never Mentioned On My Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is held by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl
Today’s topic is all about the books I’ve enjoyed but (possibly) never mentioned on my blog.

1. Firefly Lane ~ Kristin Hannah

This was my introduction to Kristin Hannah. Since then I have read several of her books.

2. Coast Road ~ Barbara Delinsky

I remember finding this book to be very each and poignant as it celebrated the ties that bind each of us together.

3. The Lost Valentine ~ James Michael Pratt

I saw the movie start Jennifer Love Hewitt and Betty White and loved it (even though it made me cry). When I realized there was a book that the movie was based on, I was quick to purchase it. The book is different from movie but still enjoyable.

4. Holes ~ Louis Sachan

I remember reading Holes when it first came out and enjoyed it. It’s just one of those books that stuck with me.

5. When I Was The Greatest ~ Jason Reynolds

This was my first experience reading Jason Reynolds and it was worth all the buzz. I still get chills when I think about listening to him speak at the Simon Teen Blogger Party at BEA 2013.

6. Every Body Looking ~ Candice Iloh

This is a fantastic verse novel about a young Black woman’s journey for self acceptance and cost of acceptance within her family and America.

7. The War That Saved My Life ~ Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

This book came highly recommended by Lindsey and I can one hundred percent understand why. Such a moving piece of historical fiction!

8. The Ex Talk ~ Rachel Lynn Soloman

This is a hilarious romantic comedy that I read in one day. I was addicted to these characters and their dynamic relationship.

9. Fresh ~ Margot Wood

I have followed Margot Wood since her work with Epic Reads and was so excited to read her debut. Fresh made me laugh and reflect on my first year away at college which in no way as exciting as Elliot’s.

10. Still Alice ~ Lisa Genova

A poignant look at Alzheimers disease from the view of the person with Alzheimers.

I may have mentioned a couple of these books in the past but if I did I don’t believe it was nearly as often as I should.

What are some books that you loved but rarely talk about?

  1. I’ve read and loved all the Lisa Genova books, especially Still Alice. I’ve seen Jason Reynolds discussed on book sites and heard that his titles are really worth a try. And my now-adult kids read Holes– but Wayside School series by him is the best! My kids took turns reading those out loud when we were on car trips and giggling about it.
